Sudan ruling transitional military council's deputy head said the Sudanese forces participating with the Saudi-led coalition fighting Houthis in Yemen will remain there, Reuters cited Sudan news agency (SUNA) on Monday April 15.

General Mohamed Hamdan Dagalo said in a statement to SUNA: "We are adhering to our commitment to the coalition, and our forces will remain until the coalition fulfils its goals."

On Sunday April 14th, Sudan's foreign ministry urged the international community to back the country's new military rulers to help "democratic transition", according to AFP.

The ministry said in a statement, "The ministry of foreign affairs is looking forward to the international community to understand the situation and to support the transitional military council ... in order to achieve the Sudanese goal of democratic transition.
